I can see clearly now the rain is gone
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It's gonna be a bright (bright)
Bright (bright) sunshiny day
This song came to my mind and reminded me of two things.
1: I just had cataract surgery and from what I understand,
in about six weeks
I will be able to sing that song. The surgery itself was a miracle.
I had gone to Medical city and the doctor told me it would cost
P200,000 for one eye. That's about $4,000. I have read where many
Filipinos go blind because they can not afford the surgery. After
searching the internet we found a charity hospital which would do it
for p3600 (about $70)
When I met the doctor he told me that he was sad that I had been here
for twelve years helping filipinos and I had to travel so far to get help. So he
said I should only pay p600. (about 11 dollars) It was amazing. What a
wonderful man who donates his time to help others. After it was over,
he gave us the P600 back!
#2 It reminded me of all the people here we presented the Gospel who
can now see clearly .Those dark clouds that had them blind had passed
and the sun was bright and hopeful.
Thank you Jesus for your mercy.
